    No pics yet - I pick it up tomorrow

    I saw the comment; I don't know if these will warp on fitting, I don't think so but you never know. They aren't the usual cheap cast aluminium spacers (though I have a set of those too which also didn't fit very well!) but rather they have been machined off the end of a solid billet bar.. they were also ridiculously expensive and now that I've got a mill and a lathe, I could have made my own pretty easily. Ah well!

    I bought them to try and avoid having to shave the rear callipers down to get the 15" wheels to clear, but we'll see. I haven't tried fitting them again since I bought the spacers!

    Think they'll be problems if my experience is anything to go by - you need to be abs sure that the mating surfaces are in contact properly to avoid a disaster.
    My advice would be to fit the hubs as standard and see what happens. Maybe easier to fit smaller brakes?

    I'm not sure there are any smaller brake options out there - the XJ40 rears are already pretty tiddly.. Kevin (the other one) just filed a bit off the outside of the sliding calliper to clear, which is my other option

    In other news, however...

    THere's a threaded bung just to the right of the heater hose barb on the intake manifold that can be used, it opens into the coolant passage behind the thermostat The thermostat housing will be changed for the original style header tank, and all the final plumbing etc needs doing as well as the sensors for water temperature, oil pressure etc..

    Aaron,

    Well worth the wait, nice and shinny. I bet you were making sure the trailer was secure.
    Aluminium heads should make some nice horse power over cast iron plus the weight saving.
    You gone 427 and mild cam?
    You looking at Tremec or Top loader for your gearbox?
